Liverpool boss Klopp outlines his plans for the future after talk of retirement

Liverpool boss Klopp outlines his plans for the future after talk of retirement

He's under contract with Liverpool until 2026.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will take time away from football once he leaves his role at Anfield.

Klopp, 55, has been with the Merseyside club since being appointed as Brendan Rodgers replacement in 2015.

He has gone on to win every major honour as Liverpool manager including both the Premier League and Champions League.

Now into his eighth year at the club, Klopp has been in charge of Liverpool longer than any other team in his managerial career – having lasted six years at Mainz and seven at Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp was tipped to leave Liverpool in 2024 at the end of his previous deal but earlier this year he committed his long-term future to the club, signing a new contract to keep him at Anfield until 2026.

Klopp reveals his future plans

Klopp is unsure if he will take up another managerial role once he leaves Liverpool but is certain he will need at least a break from football once he departs.

"If I end the contract in Liverpool, then nothing will definitely be done for a year," he told Bild.

Klopp has not ruled out becoming Germany head coach once he leaves Liverpool but says the circumstances would have to be suitable for him.

"It's not completely out of the question that I'll be the national coach at some point. But it has to fit. And so far it hasn't," he added.

Klopp has previously confirmed he plans to return to Germany, although he is unsure if this will be for football reasons or retirement.

"I certainly will [return to Germany] to live, but I don't know if I will be back there as a coach. The day will come when I say, 'thanks, it was a pleasure'," Klopp told RND.

"It's very, very unlikely that I will still be sitting on the bench when I am 60.

"And, if at the end of my career I only got to coach Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool, then it will certainly have been three fantastic clubs."
